There are various types of people in the world but they can all be categorized into two: those that do not take risks and those that are risk takers and thrill seekers. Not many people can stomach the sight of high places and this is why there are only a few people that would be enticed by skydiving. There are several things you need to know about sky diving and one of that is that the speed it would take a sky diver to get to the bottom varies depending on the position of the body. As you might have already seen many times in the movies, when a diver jumps of the aircraft, he would be plunging to the ground on his belly and this is the kind of position that slows the speed of his fall.
If you free fall at 14,000 feet, you are bound to hit the ground within a minute, but some divers can take up to five to 7 minutes depending on the position they have the whole time. They say that the world is truly a beautiful place but you never really know how unless you see it from up in the sky.
It cannot be denied that things that are beautiful on the ground, will be even more beautiful above and that is why people would go the extra mile when diving and they would do it over a gorgeous scenery. Many tourists have been slightly disappointed that they traveled far to see something beautiful and they get to enjoy it for about a day or two only. There is no denying that sky diving offers a different kind of excitement and thrill to tourists and this is why more and more tourist destinations are embracing it and offering it as one of their to-do activities when on vacation. There is nothing like the feeling of seeing something that only very few people will be able to see. For people who are seeking not only thrill but beauty as well, you ought to be keen on your research about diving sites because there are so many of them to choose from and they all vary in what they have to offer.
There is a brief seminar you are going to have to take before you do your first dive and you cannot even dive alone since it is protocol that you do it with a professional sky diver first. The first time you do it, you are going to feel so happy and excited, but the moment the aircraft takes off, that’s the time you will feel nervous and you will think about all the worst case scenarios that could possibly happen while you are 14,000 feet above the ground. Once you are good to go, the instructor will be the one to make the leap and then you start falling farther and farther from the aircraft.
